A Defense of Antony Flew’s “There is a God” from his Own Letters

 A Defense of the Integrity of Antony Flew’s “There is a God” From His Own Letters

On Kindle  |  On the Nook

The back story in brief:  Several years ago, word came out that Antony Flew had rejected his atheism.  What he accepted was in doubt and in dispute.  We were told that his new introduction to God and Philosophy would set the record straight but it did anything but.  In a conversation with Dr. Gary Habermas, I asked him about it, and was informed that basically, Flew was very disappointed with that introduction and had wanted to say something … continue reading...

Infatuation with the ‘New’: A Defense of the Old

While getting preparing the release of my collection of letters from Antony Flew for release on Kindle, I was re-reading the comments on Amazon for Flew’s  book There is a God.   One of them reminded me of a topic that has been gnawing on me for awhile.

One comment said:

There is not a single argument Flew offers that is even remotely original. In fact, it is largely composed of re-hashings of the “fine-tuning” design style arguments already offered by a myriad of thinkers.

The Silence of the Wolves: Atheists Turn Docile in Face of the Facts

It is not so common in philosophical debates to arrive at points of contentions where there really, truly, is indisputable refutation or demonstration.  Usually, it is a question of interpretation and the argument can continue on.  On my blog I have documented over the years a few points where the argument against the atheist was incontrovertible.  The result:  silence.

I would like to give free-thinking objective and even handed and mentally superior atheistic friends an opportunity to exhibit integrity by highlighting the three examples (plus a bonus one) that come to mind and calling upon the atheists and their defenders … continue reading...

A Refutation of Antony Flew’s “Gardener Parable.”

With the upcoming release of Antony Flew’s book documenting his abandonment of atheism and explanation of where he currently stands, There Is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind, I thought it would be fun to trot out some of my own material responding to Antony Flew’s arguments when he was yet in the atheistic camp. Obviously, I don’t know if arguments such as the ones I have were what helped him, but I have strong suspicions that when we read his book we’ll see that something like them did the trick. Below is an … continue reading...

Will Antony Flew Become a Christian? Will He come to Christ?

Cover of There is a GodComing in November will be Antony Flew’s final treatment on where he stands and hopefully how he got there. In case you’re wondering, Antony Flew was for years considered one of the foremost atheists of the century (sorry Dawkins, you don’t even come close, although no one surpasses your rabidity). After a time, he began to warm up to Christianity- or at least, to theism, finally adopting a position that sounded a lot like deism. I was among many in wanting to hear more. We were told that his new edition of God & Philosophy would have a new introduction … continue reading...
